Trip Maker presents - Hard Acid Funk and Soul [JAM-027]

Published March 26, 2006

Sean Witzman, aka Trip Maker, is the host of Holy Victrola, a radio show broadcasting to central Missouri on public radio affiliate KOPN 89.5 FM every Thursday from 3 to 5 PM. One of his favorite weekend activities, when he's away from his day job at the library, is making 90 minute mix tapes for his friends. After making a rap/soul/groove tape for a friend, Sean was approached by Channing Kennedy of Cat Jams and asked to put together some mixes for his vanity label, Cat Jams Label.

The first mix Sean made was this Hard Acid Funk and Soul mix. Sean was going through a heavy Funkadelic phase at the time he compiled these tracks and considered making every other song on the mix a George Clinton production, and he actually did at first. Then he realized that boundary would only limit his scope, so he abandoned that idea. Some of the tracks found on this mix were obtained from records in the music stacks at KOPN 89.5 FM.

This mix was released as a limited run of 15 cassettes with standard liner/case packaging. The inside tracklisting is a needlessly accurate reproduction of Sean's original blank cassette liner tracklisting.

The tracks present on these mixes are out of print, hard/impossible to find, and for entertainment purposes only, and are generallynot intended to impede on anyone's royalties. If you dig the tunes, support the artists or their remaining relatives, natch. Contact Channing with beefs and he will graciously accommodate you.
